Renaissance England What's in a name? - Quite a bit, actually. What's in that ink bottle? The potential for poems, plays …and treason. Learn to write a sonnet, recite some Shakespeare (or Marlowe or Johnson). Put on a play, escape the Plague, Apprentice to a weaver, tailor, midwife or tavern keeper. Play the games of court, or chance the games of politics. Spin a thread or Weave a Dance; Act a part or Party at a merchant's faire... Sing away your sorrow and chance your fortune into another's purse. Revel in the golden sunshine of the first Tudor Queen... even if ankle deep in mud.
Robyn Plaeyr - Shakespearean Actor - At work extracting a sonnet from a large group of High School Language Arts students
The apprentices of Renaissance London passed what little free time they might have playing running games such as "Tierce" and socialized while weaving through the dance of the double-bransle. Through IHC's programs, students realize their own modern experiences can connect to those of kids from every era and by recognizing their similarities, they may also better understand their differences as well.
